SUNDAYS IN MY CITY
Any Sunday, any time, and any sort of season
Novocastrians take a drive, and for a very good reason.
They drive to the Hunter Valley through rich and ripening vines
Forgetting that, beneath them, lie the tunnels of the mines,
And they come upon Pokolbin, where the glorious gardens spread,
With the little Brokenback Mountains rising far ahead.
Twenty-five acres of gardens each with its own design
And outdoor tables made for lazing, sipping Hunter Valley wine.
With thirty-five thousand roses, they could wander round for weeks,
Unless they were diverted by the riveting boutiques!
It's a garden, it's a playground, it's a place to ease your mind,
The Hunter Valley Gardens are joy. And what a find!
What a beautiful garden!I'll bet it is beautiful at Christmas.Love the rhyme too!
nice garden! would love to sit and read a book, or just walk around contemplatively.
Who is following who, now? There's an update detail that has been added to Sissinghurst today!
Nice thought about formal gardens and their peaceful influence on the mind.

That's a spectacular garden.
Very nicely laid out gardens, would be lovely to stroll around. Christmas lights would make an interesting effect in the evenings.
Lovely! A great find indeed.
A place to ease your mind? It´s really spectacular! Truly amazing garden I would like to have on my backyard too if it could only fit there.
35,000 roses. Amazing. I would love to see them..!!!
